Snake bubbles. So easy & you probably already have all the supplies in your house. You will need: -an empty bottle (I used a Gatorade bottle) -rubber band -terry cloth (I used a wash cloth) -liquid dish soap -water. Mix the dish soap with some water, I did a 2/1 ratio (2 soap to 1 water). Cut the bottom off the bottle. Trace the bottom of bottle onto the terry cloth w/about an inch overlap. Cut out the circle & attach to bottom of bottle using rubberband. Dip bottom of bottle into soap & blow.
A Couple of Craft Addicts: Snake Bubbles; need plastic bottle, rubber band, and washcloth

Using a plastic bottle, a rubber band, washcloth, and some basic dish soap, your kids will have hours of fun making a snake out of bubbles!

matching bottle caps
FUN IDEA: Bottle and lid matching activity - great idea for an OT activity! definitely targets fine motor skills, visual motor, and cognitive skills! Tips and ideas to help Work At Home Moms: Break your day up into small windows of time. Plan ahead for activities. Use your small windows of time to work, while kids play at centers: either at the table or small motor activities. #wham #kids #sensory #activities #iamwickless www.iamwickless.com
Simple Little Home: 40 Ways to Distract a Toddler- tons of great ideas like this one: "Bottles and cap matching. Take a bunch of used bottles (washed, of course) and let children match the caps to the bottles. Added bonus? This is a self-correcting activity, so when they get to the end and all the caps don't match, they know they've made a mistake and can go back to find it." - probably not for kids at the putting-everything-in-their-mouths stage.

Writing in salt.. Love this idea for practicing letters!
montessori inspired activity ideas.
Forgot about salt. Writing in salt. It is an awesome way for a child to use more of his or her brain while learning letters (or anything). The whole body connection (finger/arm/eyes/textures) that occurs helps both imprint the knowledge and stimulate the brain. This site has Montessori & Montessori-inspired activities. I still remember doing these things in preschool!
Writing in salt - good idea for learning letters!
